My pump is about 8 years old and has worked well until recently. I have a 20k salt water in-ground pool in Phoenix, AZ.
I've noticed a steady drip each time it runs and lately it's doesn't prime every time it turns on. It primes sometimes and not others. The pressure is at 0 when it doesn't prime and about 30 (which is correct for my pool) when it's primed. The skimmer baskets are free of debris.
